Bollywood actress Vidya Balan had been offered the role of Indira Gandhi, the late prime minister of India who was also the only woman PM of India. It was to be directed by Manish Gupta, but it seems the film didn’t work out. Vidya reveals, “I’ve been offered the role of Indira Gandhi a couple of times but it’s not really worked out so far in terms of script. Maybe someone writes a good script someday….”
When we questioned Vidya if she admired the late prime minister, she responded, “Yeah. I just find her a formidable force. And when we think of a powerful name in the country Indira Gandhi’s name is foremost and the only woman prime minister we’ve had. So, I’d love to play Indira Gandhi. But lots of other things as well. I could never imagine I would play a homemaker who is a late night RJ (in Tumhari Sulu). My imagination is very limited in it. I’m hoping there are lots of writers who can think of interesting stories to tell with me.”
With that, it definitely looks like it will be a treat to watch Vidya Balan in Tumhari Sulu. The film releases worldwide on November 17, 2017.
